What’s in my Gym Makeup Bag?

In order to get a parking spot at the University I work for, I go in and workout at 6:30 AM. While this may seem extreme, I promise you it is not. This guarantees me a parking spot the whole day right outside my office. This means I get ready in the gym and put on my makeup after I get out of the shower.



I have a few things I take with me everyday and it gives me enough coverage and the look I am going for.



Facewipes to remove any dirt/sweat that might get into my pores

Primer for my foundation that’s Rimmel Fix and Perfect

Powder – Stay Matte from Rimmel

Benefit Erase Paste

Mascara, Scandal Eyes

Here you have OPI pink fingernail polish, polka polish, and top coat.

Lips include a Milani lip pencil, MAC lipstick, and NYX butter gloss. I change up the colors, but it’s pretty much the same combo.

An elf palette with many colors of eye shadow.

Rimmel Liquid liner, Rimmel Nude Eye liner (my love!)

24 hour Metal eye shadow tattoo

I also have brushes shadow, crease, blush and bronzer. There’s a rose salve and a pair of tweezers. There’s an eyebrow pencil, a pencil sharpener, bobby pins, and a highlight and conceal concealer.


That’s it, all I need for a full face and a great look when I get out of the locker room!


What do you take with you when you get your fitness on? Comment below and happy weight loss Wednesday!


Interview with Salamanda!

Interview with the Youtuber!!


What is the one makeup product you can’t live without?

MAC Prolongwear concealer in NC25.  Hands down.  It’s one of the ONLY things I believe in paying full price for—that and ultra-soft toilet paper!  It really makes a difference!


Why did you decide to start making videos?

I started making videos a few months after I moved to Alaska with the USAF.  I was isolated, lonely, and missing a creative outlet.  Enter:  YouTube!  It was the perfect way for me to connect with people all over the world, meanwhile satisfying the right half of my brain space. 


What’s your favorite color?

My favorite color is EXTREMELY situational, and varies moment to moment!  Right now, as I sit in the kitchen with my coffee, my favorite color is an olive-y green.  If I had to pick JUST ONE color though it would probably be the color of grass just after it rains.


What is your favorite brand?

Can I pass on this question?  =)  Most of the things I wear I find at thrift stores, so there isn’t one specific brand I identify with! 


What’s one interesting thing about you?

 I used to be a ballet dancer!  I took my dancing career very seriously my entire life until my ankles fell apart.  Every now and again I throw a dance more (or two) into my videos. 


Do you believe in UFO’s?

I believe that UFOs are simply humans in the distant future who have lost records of the past, and they are here to try and figure out how the heck we live.  In short:  YES!  =)


How do you feel about zombies?

TERRIFIED.  I’m not scared of spiders, I’m not scared of snakes, but the THOUGHT of a zombie apocalypse makes me cry instantly. 

Whats your favorite color eyeshadow?

I love me some metallics.  There’s nothing better than a golden-champagne color all over the lid!


Tell us about your channel and blog:

I’m passionate about helping people embrace their inner weird through personal style.  Most of my channel’s content is centered around thrift stores and thrifting because, let’s be honest, I’m one cheap son-of-a-gun!  Trends are constantly recycling— Chances are if something is trendy now it was trendy 20 years ago.  Why not capitalize on this phenomenon by scouring thrift stores and second-hand shops for “trendy” pieces for a fraction of the price!?  Thrifting is my hobby, my passion, and what I love to do, and it definitely shows in my videos.  =)
